in cairo issued a statement that seemed to apologize for anti-muslim activity in the united states. that prompted the white house to quickly release another statement through an administration official saying that cairo embassy remarks were, quote, not cleared. secretary of clinton issued her own statement, condemning the attacks under the strongest possible terms, but that was not quick enough for the romney camp to blasted the obama saying it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions. and then from the obama campaign, we are shocked that at a time when the united states of america is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in libya, governor romney would choose to launch a political attack. end quote. newt gingrich appeared on cnn this morning and blasted president obama. >> when the american flag was torn down and destroyed, an american ambassador and three other americans are killed, my reaction is not to be pleasant and caring of those tearing down our flag and insulting o iassau co
's policies. let's watch. >> this is not a case of protests directed at the united states at large or at u.s. policy. this is in response to a video that is offensive. >> chris: you don't really believe that? >> chris, absolutely i believe that. in fact, it is the case. we had the evolution of the arab spring over the last many months but what sparked the recent violence was the airing on the internet of a very hateful very offensive video that has offended many people around the world. now, our strong view is that there is no excuse for violence. it is reprehensible and never justified but in fact there have been those in various parts of the world who have reacted with violence. their governments have increasingly and effectively responded and protected our facilities and condemned the violence and this outrageous response to what is an offensive individual yo video. there is no question what we have seen in the past with satanic verses and the cartoon of the prophet muhammad there have been such things that have sparked outrage and anger and this has been the proximate cause. >> chris:
's in response not to the united states policy, not to, obviously, the administration and not to the american people, it's in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. >> sure, that's what it was about, all about and watching a video. and so how has this administration handled the crisis? my first guest is on the intelligence committee, would you please welcome minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann. [applause]. good to see you. >> thank you so much for coming. >> thank you. >> no nice to be with you. >> (applause): congresswoman, the white house is blaming all of this on this movie trailer for a movie that nobody really has even seen trying to say that all of this violence was stirred up because people saw a film. your thoughts, is that what we're really dealing with here is a film? >> no, it isn't. that's the excuse, but that isn't what it is because we know what's happening for about since 2005. the 57 muslim countries across the world have had a plan for ten years and they want it force all the rest of the world to be in compliance with their re
. that is why i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> romney harrially criticized the president for downplaying a bump in the road the terrorist attack in libya that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans two weeks ago. >> these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives and developments we don't want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east. >> romney charged obama administration nighyevly jumping the gun that the insistence that the attack were unplanned. team romney planned for weeks to pick up tempo of the obama attack. the emphasis on alternate policies. >> whether on the auto industry or taxes, whether it's on social issues. what he is saying about my position is not true. >> obama camp launched a new blast today using the surreptitiously obtained of romney dissing those who don't pay income taxes. >> romney attacked 57% of americans who don't pay income tax, including veteran, elderly and disabled. >> asked about the negative misleading ads on "60 minutes" the president did not deny it. >> do we see
and a stern warning. the israeli prime min sister warning the united states to establish a clear line that iran cannot cross with the nuclear program. this morning we ask what is that line and what happens if it's crossed? >>> front page scandal. the royal family trying to stop topless pictures of kate from spreading. an italian magazine owned by the former prime minister silvio berlusconi is publishing a 38-page special edition. it's hitting newsstands now. >> a replacement ref replaced before the kickoff. side judge brian stropolo booted for openly being a saints fan. he posted pictures of himself in saints gearal gating. monday morning quarterback this one. one. "newsroom" begins right now. -- captions by vitac -- >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with us. i'm carol costello. we begin this hour with muslim outrage and new flare-ups of anti-american violence. one flash point, kabul, afghanistan. crowds of protesters turn on police when they try to block their march toward the u.s. embassy. at least 15 officers are hurt and their vehicles set on fire. in ind
for the united states coming on and misleading the public. basically we have sent a letter to ambassador rice to explain herself. >> you know, there's a story out today, i didn't know if you saw it, senator, but the story essentially was that the united states government within 24 hours knew it was a pre-planned terrorist attack. your thought on that. because that indicts rice and whomever else was in this cover-up even more. >> that's right. ambassador rice came on the sunday morning programs and said that, in fact, it was a spontaneous reaction of course to the video. and in no way was an expression of hostility toward america. and you have to say killing four american heroes, quite honestly, attacking our consulate, if that's not hostility toward america, i don't know what it is. so, no, i think it's pretty apparent that the administration must have known, had information, and ambassador rice was sent out on the sunday programs to mislead the american public. i find that outrageous, and i think she needs to explain herself and explain herself fast. we should also call for an investigation.
the united states ambassador to libya and three other americans. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> with only 47 days to go until the election, the romney campaign's about to roll out another new strategy. voters will be seeing a lot more of mitt romney. in fact, we're only minutes away from his speech at a rally in florida. our national political correspondent jim acosta is joining us now live from sarasota to set the scene. jim, what's going on? >> reporter: wolf, we expect mitt romney to be out here in sarasota, florida, in just a few minutes from now. this is where his advisors say after a relatively light schedule over the last couple weeks, mitt romney and his campaign will be picking up the pace. and after seeming to defend those comments on that hidden camera video on government dependency, romney appears to be shifting again on that message as well looking for something that will stick. after being caught on tape writing off 47% of voters as obama supporters who are dependent on government, mitt romney was checking his math at a candidate's forum with the spanish
. it was a crude and disgusting video, sparking outrage throughout the muslim world. the united states government had nothing to do with this video. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. i know there are some who ask why don't we ban such a video? there's no video that justifies an attack on an ambassador any more than the people that produced this video represent views of americans. >> bill: i'm confused. now we're back to blaming the video for the terrorist attack. weren't we told it was "self-evident" by jay carney this was all the work of al qaeda? then it was terrorism, then al-qaeda. my head is spinning trying to keep up with the changing versions and the finger-pointing going on. let's call this what it is. it's a cover-up by the administration. a pair of senators must be smelling the same stink, because they're demanding that the secretary of state, hillary clinton, release ambassador stevens' diplomatic cables. a few short blocks away from the u.n. where the president continued to condemn this youtube trailer, we're awaiting
on american aircraft over the united states. i don't think that's going -- nothing's going to stop that happening. >> reporter: the u.s. government is not even considering allowing passengers to use cell phones on planes. but officials are looking into whether passengers can use devices like these to read or listen to music during takeoff and landing. american airlines pilots just started using ipads in the cockpit throughout the flight to access maps and other information. flight attendants will also get tablets to use inside the cabin. and consumer advocates say allowing passengers to do the same during takeoff and landing would only be fair. >> it kind of bothers consumers and passengers not so much the fact that they can't make cell phone calls, just the fact they can't use any electronic devices. >> reporter: and he worries one day on domestic u.s. flights dealing with a loud neighbor talking on a mobile phone may be the next in-flight inconvenience. sandra endo, cnn, washington. >> polls show mitt romney's support is lagging in key states. we'll talk with newt gingrich about
must address the issue. he says israel is in discussions with the united states regarding the path forward. he pushed for a red line to stop iran, which he says will have what it needs to build a nuclear weapon by next summer. of course, iran has claimed their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. the fox report's chief correspondent is work the united nations today. jonathan, prime minister binyamin netanyahu is portraying this essentially as a fight between good and evil. >>jonathan: he absolutely put iran in the evil bracket. he said the regime is essentially the face of radical islam and the iranian regime would like to return the world to medieval times and the rest of the world is aware that iran has been a global sponsor of terrorism. to the delegates inside the general assembly, he put a simple question. i ask you, given this record of iranian agression without nuclear weapons, imagine iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. imagine their long-range missiles tipped with nuclear warheads, their terror networks armed with atomic bombs. who among you would feel safe
will win this election, finish what we started and remind the world why the united states is the greatest nation on earth. >> the great debate five days away. why romney has to win and why obama can't afford to lose. i'll talk to my political a-team. also, bibi and the bomb. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us. plus, have you seen chelsea lately? >> nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. >> one of my favorites guests is back. >> i'm single, yes. >> if men are watching this -- >> yeah, i'm available. you know, just call me maybe. >> funny, feisty as ever, with a new look for her talk show. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story, the great debate. in just five days the event that could change the race for the white house permanently. the clock is ticking and the candidates know it. they meet face-to-face on wednesday. this weekend, both will be locked behind closed doors in practi
is happening on the ground. >> we cannot solve every problem but the united states cannot seek to dictate outcome of democratic outcomes abroad. >> barely a mile-and-a-half across the city, romney appeared with bill clinton at the clinton initiative and accused obama sit tong sideline while mideast unravels. >> syria witnessed killing of tens of thousands. president of egypt is member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya assassinated in terrorist attack. iran moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >> the president did not call it a terrorist attack. choosing to say it's an assault, not just on america but says he understands why it -- [ inaudible ] >> home to muslims across our country. we respect the freedom of religion. >> the president insisted his policy is not containment. >> make no mistake. nuclear armed iran is not a challenge to be contained. a coalition of countries is holding the iranian government accountable. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran obtaining nuc
the race there, really. and that underdogs usually get on the stage with the president of the united states, they feel that vibe, they're at parity and i think she basicsly broadcasting it's okay and we expect it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this coul
. thank you, god bless you, god bless these united states. >> well, making it up a little bit. god bless you and god bless the united states. there was a part of that that really caught my ear and it's when he said the road ahead may be longer. now, let me think about that a minute. four years ago, we started on this same road. four years later, the road is longer? how does a road get longer if you've been travelling on it for four years already. does that mean we've actually gone backwards p and start all over again to try to catch up? maybe that would tell us all we need to know about how to vote in november, if we're actually further behind than we were when we started off the road. just a thought for my part. [applause]. all week long democrats are asked whether americans with better off than they were four years ago. president barack obama took office, the economy was 9 full percent of gdp. we were losing 750,000 jobs, are we doing better than at that today? the answer is yes. >> that's a big surprise to most americans. i'm glad he revealed that to us, with 23 million american out o
officer in the united states government. i have the statement right here. what i believe it does it attempts to give the administration some cover for their initial comments and then concludes what we saw in libya wasn't terrorism. there is a problem here. when you read the statement is what you see is the administration assessments of libya went way beyond what is in the document specifically the statements of susan rice that spun the story that was hijacked by extremists and then launched an assault. we're going to look back on the period and original reporting as really changing the dialogue publicly about this attack. we reported a day after the assault based on an interview with the head of the house intelligence committee in was premeditated commando style attack. then with my colleagues pamela brown, on the 17th after the ambassador wrote his comments, we reported there was no demonstration at consulate when the attack happened. then my colleague bret baier was the first to report that a guantanamo detainees was suspected of having a role into that attack. you make a good
. the coalition of governments is ing iran untae. 's t united states will do what they must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> the president is taking an unconventional role in u.n. week, opting not to hold by lateral meetings. sil clinton's cking secretary calendar full of those meetings. meanwhile they're zeroing in where they called the recent events in the middle east bumps in the road i was pretty certain and contue to be pyer that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> iran is on the cusp of having a nuclear capability. we have tu malt in syria and also pakistan. i don't condehe bumps in the road. >> both men spoke at the clinton global initiative speaking out against forced labor and sex trafficking and romney laying out his plan for a pros pair path. lestarat tle so, steve, you have a theory for why foreign policy the talk of the town this week. >> well, because it's u.n. week. i mean that's the obvious. 'roi o on a limb here. >> i'm glad we built this up. i wouldn't be surprised if it's still something they're talking about after u.n. week and it strikes me that th
. what he really means to say is the united states is going to cut and run in afghanistan by 2014, whether you like it or not, and if the war continues, which it will, it will be without us. same thing's happened in iraq. he said the war was ended in iraq. no, it wasn't. it was not certainly ended for iraqis. people are getting killed every week, but the americans pulled out. if we end up with an israeli strike on iran, there's going to be a total mess in the persian gulf. >> bill: in talking about the u.n., he said the u.s. will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. i'm not sure what he means by "what we must do." i don't expect him to set it out in detail, but he said. >> look, since he refuses to meet with netanyahu, it's a little hard to figure out what he thinks what we must do is. my first meeting as speaker, before i was even sworn in, was in december of 1994 with the prime minister of israel. he was worried about iran. he said i'm not worried about the israelis. we'll manage that. he said we can't cope withan. that's 1984. the foundation have bee
of state tonight. addresses the united nations tomorrow. but he's also made some time in his very busy schedule to tape an appearance on "the view." not necessarily everyone is all that happy about that. let's bring in our chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin. give us a little background here. >> reporter: hi, wolf. not everyone is happy because he's not taking any sitdown meetings with other heads of state, including with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. the two leaders aren't even in new york city at the same time. the president is making this one a very quick trip before he hits the campaign trail again. heading into a big week, president obama was asked if he's under pressure from israel's prime minister to step up his efforts against iran. he told cbs -- >> i am going to block out any noise that's out there. >> reporter: the romney campaign bounced, accusing the president of a chronic disregard for the security of israel. and he's taking heat for this, too. the president arrived in new york a day ahead of his big speech to the united nations. and he sat down f
time to talk. to your point the united states administration said we still think there is still an opportunity for diplomacy. what you heard from prime minister netanyahu today is that israel is not going to act unilaterally. they are, they feel they are in concert with the u.s. policy at this time. and that they feel that there is a need for the world. he spoke in global terms that the threat that it poses. it will spark an arms race to make the middle east totally tender box for terrorist. >> bret: judge? >> i thought the prime minister netanyahu made a brilliant and compelling, very, very scary case for containing iran. but i disagree with juan. he damned the president with the faint praise. it's obvious he doesn't want the president re-elected. obama has approval rating in the single digit in streets of tel aviv and jerusalem. i take a little different approach here. israel is a sovereign country. it doesn't need the approval of any international body to defend itself. if iranian use of nuclear weapons on israel is imminent under principles of the just war and international
platform when it comes to the critical relationship between the united states and israel. what's going on? we'll have details. eeeee! yeah. i get all my friends' pics as soon as they take them. really? you just missed an awesome dance off between the dads. oh... wow! (laughing) you just missed the cake fight. seriously? everyone's taking pictures like they're paparazzi. are we missing that? we're not, check it out. aww, yeah, haha. excuse me. vo: get all your friends' photos automatically with share shot on the galaxy s3. hey! first dance! are you kidding me??? i'm also a survivor of ovarian a writand uterine cancers. i even wrote a play about that. my symptoms were a pain in my abdomen and periods that were heavier and longer than usual for me. if you have symptoms that last two weeks or longer, be brave, go to the doctor. ovarian and uterine cancers are gynecologic cancers. symptoms are not the same for everyone. i got sick...and then i got better.

. the defense minister pointed out we have best relations between israel and united states of the securities we have ever had. we have operation iron dome which allows the folks in israel to be protected from these rockets. i think it is one of those things that it is election year thing. connell: but the week of the u.n. general assembly, you don't think that's a fair political criticism from the other side? say hey listen, there's a lot going on here in the world, you should have sat down with them, you don't think that's fair? >> i don't think it's fair. he keeps good communications with the rest of the world. our relations with the rest of the world have been better than a long time. when i travel, people were very very pleased with what the administration was doing. they respect the president. look, we're in the last what 40 some days of a presidential campaign. that's the high priority. connell: let's talk about that a little bit before we let you go. the republicans would say look at the unemployment rate under president obama how it's stayed above 8%, this is quote unquote our year, we
. it will threaten the elimination of israel. the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: after his remarks, he crossed town to the clinton global initiative where he addressed an issue with potential appeal to evangelical and women voters, human sex trafficking. >> that's slavery. it is barbaric and it is evil and it has no place in a civilized world. >> reporter: wolf, on other top foreign policy concerns, he addressed the crisis in syria, he mentioned the withdrawal of troops from iraq and the draw down from afghanistan and the trouble between israel and the palestinians. but that was all. he essentially was checking the box on all those fronts. and no mention at all of china. in essence, wolf, this was a speech about the two crises that have consumed foreign policy discussion during the u.s. campaign. the tension between israel and iran and now this most recent crisis in libya, wolf. >> with six weeks to go until the election, jessica, tomorrow i take it he's right back out there in the swing states out on the campaign trail? >> reporter:
. of course, his visit, there's always controversy, side stories. the united states has not issued the full complement of visas to the delegation accompanying the iranian leader. about 20 or so according to the iranians out of about 160 people. the u.s. has an agreement with the united nations as the host country for the world organization to allow people to come here no matter the level of dispute. however, the u.s. also does reserve the right at times, especially in tough diplomatic relations, strained relations, and no relations with iran, to not issue visas if it so sees fit. but ahmadinejad has his visa. along with that baggage you mentioned. >> we were showing pictures of the warwick hotel, a posh hotel in new york city. that's where ahmadinejad and his entourage are going to stay. there will be protests outside the hotel later today, right? >> i think so. the warwick has been his latest place of residence. any group that opposes ahmadinejad has always denounced a new york hotel for allowing him to stay there. this has gone on. there was someone who was injured in a bombing who has su
rallied against the western world as well as the united states. let's listen in as he talks about the u.n. as well. >> the need to remove the structural values and encourage the process of universal participation in global management has never been greater before. the united nations looks efficiency to bring about the changes. if this inefficiency persists, nations will lose hope in the global structures to defend rights. if the united nations is restructured international interactions and spirit are collected global cooperation will be tarnished and the standing of the united nations will be damaged. >> want to bring in jill dougherty, our foreign affairs in new york today. you've been watching all this. we have covered in u.n. general assemblies. ahmadinejad always makes a bit of a splash, if you will, but this one, i didn't hear a lot of the kind of fiery rhetoric that we usually do. do you know why he almost seemed to tone it down this year? >> well. tone it down, but maybe our expectations were a little high because after all, what he is trying to do is really lead the charge for t
're asking is an important one. >> there's assumption the united states has military might to wipe out the nuclear programs. but there's -- there's an argument that israel's making, these things are hidden, underground. how do we know whether we would just be slowing them down and delaying the inevitable? >> well, i think we have to -- here again we have to wreck flies a certain fact. neither the united states nor israel can destroy the iranian capacity to build a nuclear weapon once and for all. we can destroy all of the facilities in the infrastructure that they have and it would be very costly and take them time to rebuild it, but they have the know-how and engineering capability to rebuild whatever would be destroyed. one of the reason it's important to create a context where the international community believes everything's been done that could be done and you've exhausted all of the diplomatic options and given the economic sanctions sufficient time, you need that so that the world says, you know what? the iranians had a chance to prevent the use of force against them, they didn'
of the global economy. and that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> cnn foreign affairs report alice is here with us this morning. good morning. this is one of the most anticipated speeches of the u.n. in no small part because he's considered a loose cannon. do we have any idea what he's going to say today. >> the rhetoric is heating up between the israelis and iran and talk about a possible iran strike on the nuclear program. i think he's going to double-down on the ante. nothing he says today is going to make israel do anything, it will be based on the nuclear program. he likes to play with people so i think he'll have a little bit of fun. and i think you can expect some tough rhetoric. in previous years it has been so tough people walked out of the room. >> that's right. i was with don ki-moon yesterday and basically he told him, i made it quite clear you must prove yourself for your nuclear program that it is for peaceful programs, you have not convinced the world. time is of the essence. i made it clear we don't have much tim
a nuclear weapon. of course the united states and israel has gone back and forth when and if a strike is necessary. the united states secretary of state sat down with prime minister netanyahu yesterday for a meeting. that is not the meeting that the prime minister wanted. he did want to meet with president obama. requested a meeting. that was request was denied. the prime minister offered to fly to washington, d.c. today to meet with president obama. we learned he is spending much of the day at campaign events. back in israel, we look again at the newspaper. not all the reaction is positive. next to the prime minister drawing on the diagram of the bomb is a headline a little bit making fun of him saying bebe, the prime minister's nickname, boom. one headline down here. they have had a caricature of him as bugs bunny drawing on the same diagram, calling the diagram a cartoon. there is feeling among some, doing that at united nations holding up the diagram and drawing the red line was perhaps not fitting the prime minister of israel. gregg? gregg: leland vittert in jerusalem. thank you
